openarena 0.8.5-5+exp1 in experimental uses the shared ioquake3 engine. It
still contains source code for the engine to avoid needing a new orig tarball,
but it isn't built, and I've removed all the patches that were previously
applied to it.

I plan to upload this to unstable just after squeeze is released, and omit
the engine from the orig tarball for the next OA upstream release.

quake3 in pkg-games git does the right thing. You can make the required
quake3-data package with my quake3 branch of game-data-packager.

On which subject: Jon, may I merge the quake3 branch, and upload it to
experimental as version 23? We can use 22.1 etc. if we need updates for
squeeze, and having a way to make quake3-data is the last thing we need
before quake3 can go into NEW.
